GENERAL INFORMATION & PRICING
Full rate: £250.00
This includes a two hour photo session, a personal web gallery to select final images from, and four fully retouched images formatted to 8x10 and Spotlight requirements. Final images will be downloadable from your web gallery and/or delivered on CD.
Extra images beyond the inclusive number that require retouching are £15.00 each.
All images are shot in colour which also gives you the option to have them in black and white. Images are in jpeg format.
A link to view your un-retouched images will be emailed to you on the day after the shoot. Once you have made your selection of images to be retouched, the retouching will take 48 hours, and these images will be available on your web gallery. If you want a CD with your images, it will be mailed to you via first class post.
This offers everything the full price shoot does. I only provide the student rate for students studying full time at a Drama UK accredited school.
A parent or responsible adult MUST be present throughout any session with actors under 16 years of age.
What to wear:
Please avoid heavy patterns and stripes, big logos, fussy necklines, and too much makeup. You will have time for several changes of clothes so please bring a variety of tops.
Outdoor or studio:
I will shoot a majority of studio based images in either natural or artificial light, as well as some on location (weather permitting and if that’s something you’d like). There is a selection of studio backgrounds available.
My studio is very near the Barbican in central London.
All headshot sessions start at either 11am or 2pm.
Hair and make up:
If you require a hair and make up artist, please get in touch for a quote. Keep in mind that if you would like to have your hair cut prior to the session it’s best to do this at least a week beforehand to allow your hair to grow in a bit and look its best.
Cash, cheque, online transfer, or PayPal.
Sessions cancelled less than two working days prior to the date and time of the session will be charged a cancellation fee of £50. By confirming a booking you agree to this arrangement.
ABOUT YOUR SESSION
When you arrive, we’ll sit down and have a cup of tea and a chat to discuss what you would like from your images. We’ll then choose the best looks from the clothes you’ve brought. Your comfort and ease are very important to the end result and my goal is to help you enjoy the session so that I can provide you with a headshot that will stand out and make you look your absolute best.
Two hours is a minimum time for a session and is usually ample to achieve a great portrait, but if I feel more time is required to get the best image I will use it.
Retouching will be very sensitively done and will only remove any unusual blemishes, stray hairs etc, to make sure that you still look like yourself on a good day.
